Bocce Ball Party —  August 1, 2024

This is not balls, brats, and beer!  Set in a garden, start your evening off with a delicious 4-course dinner and then a friendly game of bocce.  Teams will vie for bragging rights and a real-live trophy, while the conversation and setting create a magical evening. With a show stopping dessert and excellent beverages, everyone goes home a winner. No experience is necessary. Age: 21+ (Capacity: 10-16.)

Hi, Barbie. Hi, Ken. Let’s Party!

Barbie and Ken Pool Party and Barbie-Q – August 10, 2024

Have you heard? Green is the new pink in Barbie World. To celebrate, her ESN friends are hosting a pool party with all things Barbie, Ken, and friends. After the Barbie-Q, surf with Ken in the pool, dance with Barbie in her Dreamhouse and take your picture in the picture booth. Sound like fun?  Then polish your pink Corvette (EV-model), grab your sunglasses, and drive to an afternoon of fun, Barbie and Ken style. Age 18+.

Bring on the Yacht Rock

Lake Oswego Boating & Dinner – August 11, 2024

Picture a perfect summer day. Might it include sipping cocktails while cruising around Lake Oswego by motorboat, the wind in your hair and smile so wide you can barely contain it? Don’t stop there — how about a grand Mediterranean dinner served up on shore afterward, surrounded by happy people and no cares in the world? (Capacity of 12 adults.)

Down by the Riverside

Guided paddle, Salmon, and Sunset on the River – August 18, 2024

Slip into a kayak or step onto a paddleboard for a 3-hour guided tour along The Narrows, a magical spot on the Willamette River in West Linn. Following the excursion, come ashore at a picnic shelter and get seated for a 3-course barbequed salmon dinner with wine and beer. Music and conversation, with the backdrop of the setting sun, will be the ending of a perfect day down by the riverside. (Capacity of 16 paddlers.)

Birds of a Feather

Swifties’ Swift-Watch Party- September 15, 2024

Combine Taylor Swift fans with Vaux’s swifts and you’ll have a Swift Party. Fans of both will swarm to Chapman Elementary on a September evening, to witness thousands of migrating birds descend into the school’s smokestack. A local bird expert will be on hand to explain the phenomenon, accompanied by the music of another Swift phenomenon by the name of Taylor. While enjoying light picnic fare, Swifties will commemorate the evening by crafting friendship bracelets made of natural materials. 

Get off the Grid

Ladies of the Lake Retreat —  September 20-22, 2024

How to rejuvenate after a summer of chaos: Retreat to a coastal lake house accessible only by boat, with no choice but to unplug. Enjoy the comfort of a hammock, a refreshing splash in the lake, a peaceful morning yoga routine, the joy of friends around a campfire, and best of all someone to cook for you (and serve you top-notch margaritas). This weekend includes two nights lodging, five delicious meals, a thrilling tubing or waterskiing option, and all the paddling, woods wandering, or hammocking your heart desires. After all, you deserve it! (Capacity is limited to 17.)

Freebird!

Harvest Party Concert in the Garden  —  September 29, 2024

ESN’s house band is back! Sing along to crowd favorites across genres like folk, indie, pop, rock and some fun parodies. Have an instrument? Let the Disruptors know you’d like to play or sing along. They’ll even host an intimate uke-torial for beginning players. Shareable plates, beer, wine and kombucha will keep the party flowing. Take home some fresh-pressed apple cider, a sure sign that harvest season has arrived. (Capacity for up to 35 harmonious friends.)

Sunshine for the Mind

Brunch and Bouquets — May 11, 2024: PAST EVENT

You know that healthy food is good for you, but did you know that flowers are also good for your health? Famous botanist Luther Burbank said: “Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful: they are sunshine, food, and medicine for the mind.” This party will serve up both: a decadent al fresco brunch, and a hands-on tutorial on the principals of flower arranging. Each guest will take home their bouquet and a book on the art of flower arranging. Age 18+. 

Alpaca Picnic

Baby Goats, Emus & Eco-Farm Party – May 19, 2024: PAST EVENT

Welcome spring with a guided tour of a very special family-run sustainable farm, where animal lovers of all ages can feed and pet alpacas, goats, ostriches, sheep, emus and more. Order some homegrown grilled meat sliders or farm-fresh veggie fare with a cold pint from the farm’s food truck. Non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. Linger a while to play lawn games and take more goat selfies.
